Forums - Sales Discussion - Surely, everyone is interested in DD's

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/397530/a-third-of-all-vita-game-sales-are-digital-says-sony-rep/

Digital Download tracking must be a hot commodity right?

Surely NPD and others would be willing to pay to get access to this information, so what's the holdup?
Lots of trackers are really going to need access to this info sooner rather than later, with DD percentages reaching 33% levels.

Link for evidence above, vita sells a third of their games as digital copies. This doesn't mean that every game should have 33% added.

Anyway, this isn't about the Vita, but rather about the market climate. Trackers rely on accuracy in order to sell their "product", so why haven't we seen numbers anywhere? Seems strange.

ohh i just love double D's

Bet With Zero: He says WiiU and XB1 gap will be higher than 1.9M by end of 2014, i say it will grow smaller or vanish. 

Bet with Pezus: i win if Watch dogs sells more on PS3+360  than on next gen PS4 + Xbox One. winner gets 1 month sig control

Bet With JoeTheBro: He says WiiU in Jan 2013 > XB1 Jan 2014, i say the opposite.

damn i thought i t was about boobs!

yeah digital is cool, they should track it, it doesnt make any sense not too. more than half of sales like hots was digital and wow expansions were mostly digital upgrades.



 

Because for whatever reason certain publishers don't want us to know it. I cant think of a reason right now... but give me a minute.

Dont Think...

I must say I am sorely disappointed. Not only by the lack of double-D's but also by the lack of digital download tracking

Watch this space - counting down to the GOTG soon

Don't you mean to say all publishers?

I think MS sends him DD numbers in private. Why won't he share with us?

I wonder if they're including PSN+ downloads. I know other publishers have been questioned about including those.

It could also be PS1 and other cheap PSN downloads. This certainly doesn't lead me to believe "Full Games" that can be found in retail make up this 33%.



This was always a little questionable, and now that you're using the gif to specifically taunt others in threads you've lost my benefit of the doubt and you can't have it anymore.  

Best,

I did not want to see any double Dees. I was hoping this was about anything but and I am not disappointed.

There is always a reason, and it is probably about money.

 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...
